The original recipe for this powerful herbal blend was handed down through word of mouth by Northern Canadian Ojibway Indians for hundreds of years. It eventually reached the ear of Canadian Nurse Rene Caisse who became famous for her use of it with ill patients. She called it “Essiac”, Caisse spelled backwards. Today, this powerful blend of herbs is still used by millions of people around the world to achieve fast and powerful results. The original blend contained only 4 herbs. Over the years 4 more herbs known for their beneficial and complimentary attributes were brilliantly added by Nurse Caisse in collaboration with Dr. Charles Brusch to make Essiac Tea a more potent and well-rounded blend. We feel blessed to have trusted friends of Nurse Caisse share this very special recipe with us so we may make it available to you.
